Faculty in the Physics Department at the UCD Downtown Campus engage in research that advances broad knowledge in their fields. These faculty are committed to bringing both professional experience and academic know-how to the classroom. In addition, faculty often work to stay relevant and groundbreaking by continuing to advance their fields through research and outcome-driven projects. Many enjoy national and international recognition.

Some of the many current research projects speak to topics ranging from searching for dark matter to medical research around oral cancer. Some projects exist with the assistance of grant funding, and many of these projects have been continuously awarded due to their impressive and helpful results.

Students are very much part of the team, as well: check the links at left for an overview of internship opportunities in industry and government as well as some fascinating faculty projects.
